Founded as a funky little brewpub by Dale Katechis in 1997, Oskar Blues Brewery launched the craft beer-in-a-can apocalypse in 2002, using a tabletop machine that sealed one can at a time. In 2008, the makers of the top-selling pale ale in ColoRADo, Dale's Pale Ale, added a brewery in Longmont, ColoRADo. The brewery has since experienced explosive growth-from packaging 59,000 barrels of beer in 2011 to 149,000 barrels in 2014. In December 2012, Oskar Blues opened the doors to an expansion brewery in Brevard, North Carolina. Oskar Blues has continued craft can innovation by introducing the CROWLER as a canned off-premise growler alternative. The innovative, original canned craft brewery now distributes trail-blazing craft brews to 44 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., as well as parts of Canada, Sweden, and the U.K. For more information and social media visit http://www.oskarblues.
Longmont, CO & Brevard, NC--Following the successful release of PINNER Throwback IPA across the nation (44 states and counting) in 6-packs, 12-packs and on draft, Oskar Blues Brewery is rolling out this flavorful nectar in 19.2-ounce single-serve CANs. The stovepipe PINNER will debut in Oskar Blues' home states of ColoRADo and North Carolina, then expand to top single-serve states such as California and Illinois, where beer lovers thirst for tallboys of craft beer at venues such as happening music spot, House of Blues.
Iconic award-winning Dale's Pale Ale was the first to fill the 19.2-ounce package, followed by crisp, refreshing Mama's Little Yella Pils. Now PINNER joins the stovepipe line-up of more beer for the buck in time for summer shows and other outdoor spectator events, in places like Red Rocks, Coors Field, and Asheville's historic McCormick Field.
PINNER Throwback IPA is available in 6-packs, 12-packs, draft and alongside Dale's Pale Ale, Mama's Little Yella Pils, and Old Chub Scotch Ale in Oskar Blues' expanded CANundrum mixed-up 12-pack. Now, based on the sucess of the other packages, Oskar Blues offers stovepipes of juicy, crushable PINNER. So many different ways to get pinned.
PINNER comes in at 4.9 percent ABV and 35 IBUs, making it easy to throw back a few on a hot summer day. That's only one reason this light but flavorful dry-hopped beer is a great bet for barbecues, trailside, picnics, and beach adventures.
